Another thing that I would hope for if this project were to come to fruition, would be that the TO would dig deep. I, for one, would be dissappointed if the shows were limited to the usual suspects, you know, the Fillmore's , Avalon Ballroom, Closing of Winterland, Cornell '77, Cape Cod '79 etc. Certainly these shows have their place in this project, however, as we all know, there are many underrated gems out there that, if they were brought to light, would shine as brightly as those do. To me this would be a great success if after this project has been going on for a while, we have added some new concerts to the current "best" shows lists that really haven't changed much in the last 10 years or so.

Precisely. That is why we need a Guru to be "TO". Anybody can tell you to listen to everbody's top 10. This person must have an historic perspective of the band. I too, hope to hear the off-the-beaten-path stuff. That's the whole idea...

That is great point. Thats mainly what I dig for when it comes to this site. New stuff, not the same normal picks. Like those dean smith shows in 93' I don't really care for that year but I went in and it was pretty damn good. The sound was a bit canned on the second night. but great playing.
